Oh no, sorry to hear about your dead battery! The average cost of a new battery is about $100, plus about $70 for the labor costs if you get a mechanic to install it.
Honda CR-V is not a luxury car, so you can expect to pay about the average cost listed above. Fancier, complex vehicles like Teslas will cost at least $100 more to replace the battery.
Now, it sounds like your car might be stuck. You have three options to get the battery replaced.
You could call
roadside assistance or a mobile mechanic to replace the battery onsite.
You could get the vehicle
towed to a garage where a mechanic can perform the installation.
You could replace the battery yourself and save the labor costs.
If you have protective gear and the arm strength to lift out the dead battery, you should be able to handle the replacement yourself. However, then you’ll be stuck with the dead battery. A major benefit of hiring someone else to replace your car battery is that your payment usually includes battery disposal.
